Potato Investment

People dream to gain many from few, so they buy shares or do gambling, both of which holds a probability of failure. However, not many people realize that there is an easier way to achieve this. By being more diligent and patient, they do not need to risk loosing their principal.

 If one places a potato in dirt, and waters it regularly, a number of potatoes shall be what one discovers months later. Perhaps many know this piece of primitive knowledge, few thought it as a form of investment. Investment of what, one may ask, certainly not finance investment. Of course, no, but one will be rolling in the potatoes and self-pride, which by comparison, seems to be more realistic than in the abstract ‘money’. When I speak ‘potatoes’, I do not mean hundreds or thousands of them, but just enough to fulfill the huger of an individual, and only under such circumstance do joy come with them. Otherwise, it becomes a duty, an alternative method to gain money, that is, a burden.

 When one grows potatoes or other vegetables or fruits, not only should one expect to harvest the edibles, but also to harvest things such as content, happiness, or proudness. Surely the material accomplishment is trivial, but the spiritual wealth is immense, as opposed to a mere winning of a bet, or selling of a risen share. So, why not grow many from few?
